Here I have listed a few beaches so you can have a look and see which ones you may want to visit on your break.
Best swimming beach – West Wittering, Sussex. An award winning Blue Flag beach, West Wittering and its neighbour East Head are hard to beat. These beautiful sandy beaches are totally unspoiled, and even during the summer holidays its peaceful and relaxing. The gently shelving beach makes for safe and warm water, great for swimming.
Best walking beach – Holywell Bay, Cornwall. A short distance from the popular resort of Newquay, Holywell Bay is best visited at low tide where visitors can enjoy a long walk past the 70 year old shipwreck which can be seen just offshore.
Best beach for building sandcastles – Barafundle, Pembrokeshire. Voted Britain’s best beach by the ‘Good Holiday Guide’, Barafundle is the best beach for kids because the sand is perfect and just the right consistency for making sandcastles.
Best beach for spotting celebrities – Rock, Cornwall. Just across the estuary from the picturesque fishing village of Padstow, Rock is the place to see, and be seen. This part of Cornwall is home to the most millionaires, and if you’re lucky you might even bump into Prince’s William and Harry.
Best traditional family beach – Scarborough, North Yorkshire. Scarborough has been popular holiday resort since the 17th century. The beaches here are sandy and safe, and there’s lots of room to run about. What also makes the beaches here popular are the fish and chip shops along the seafront, why not hire a deckchair, tie a handkerchief around you head like they did in the ‘old days’.
Best surfing beach – Fistral Beach, Newquay, Cornwall. Fistral Beach is the epicentre of UK surfing, and home to the British Surfing Association which hosts the largest surfing event in the country every August. It’s not just for pro’s, if you want to have a go there are lots of surf shops who run short courses.
The most northerly beach in the UK – Skaw, Shetland Islands. If you’re into bird watching this is the place to come, the area is home to an amazing amount of gannets, fulmars, petrels, and kittiwakes. If you’re very lucky you can also see whales, dolphins, and seals too.
Overall most beautiful beach – Calgary Bay, Isle of Mull. The water may be cold here, but the scenery is outstanding, and when the sun shines it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK. The clear turquoise waters and white sand are perfect for families, it’s never too busy, and it’s just beautiful.
All these beach areas are geared up to visitors with campervan hire or motorhome rental vehicles and the island resorts are easily accessible by regular ferry crossings.
